Well maintained trail. Nice views if you add on top of the world to the middle of it. The actual hill on Mathis is pretty challenging.

Don't go in the blazing heat like we did! But it's a gorgeous hike with views that reward you for your effort

Nice hike; be prepared for a ton of mountain bikers.

The spot marked as the trailhead is inside of a gated community and I could not find anyway to access it. I ended up starting at Canyon View Park and still did the majority of this marked loop.

Very well maintained and organized trail. Very popular and is an easier alternative to Car Wreck Trail. Have your water and sun block ready if you are planning on doing the full trail during peak sunlight hours.

Some nice views and very clearly marked trail, but most of it was fairly boring and we were always afraid of colliding with a mountain biker. There are lots of ways to do this loop and we chose a few trails that took us about 6miles r/t.
